Thai media Daily News reported on the issue of irresponsible dog and cat owners who allow their pets to foul areas in front of neighbors' houses.

 

Quoting a lawyer they said that owners could face jail time and heavy fines even if they cleaned up the mess.

 

Laywer Kertphon Kaewkert said that if it was proven that owners allowed their pets to defecate in front of neighbors' houses they could be fined 10,000 baht or jailed for a month or both.

 

Even if they cleaned it up they could be jailed as it caused annoyance to others.

 

Fines were less in some other areas and there were differences between private estates and public areas according to the regulations.

 

Reports should be made with evidence to local police who would refer the matter to the courts.

 

Barking dogs could result in fines and requests to remove the dog.

 

In a related story Dr Sathit Pratchaya-ariyakul of the Thai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said that owners must take responsibility for dogs and cats according to the law.

 

He said that barking dogs could result in jail of one month and fines of 2,000 baht.

 

Letting an animal pooh outside someone's house was 500 baht, he said.

 

Leaving the corpse of a pet outside someone's house would result in a 5,000 baht fine.

 

He said that there were 5 deaths of people from diseases related to dogs in 2015 and six deaths in 2016.

My neighbour in the moobaan is a policeman, he just opens his gate so the dog can go out and walk on the roads and drag all binbags onto the roads.

 

The whole neighbourhood knows it's his dog but since they all have barking dogs they won't complain. Very annoying but at least they don't attack people like the soidogs outside the moobaan do.

Haven't all these laws been in place for years? No one makes official complaints/has evidence so nothing ever comes from it. For it to be more successful they need to give greater fine powers to the municipality staff rather than police dealing with it. Make it clear that the fines will be receipted and where the money will go (back into the community).
